The 2nd Annual Chippewa River Fair


A person doesn’t have to travel very far within the district of Algoma to take in some wonderful opportunities in the summertime to explore nature and take in an outdoor arts and crafts fair, all in the same day.

Consider a trip to Chippewa River & Falls area on your Sunday agenda this weekend.

On Sunday July 10th, the Chippewa River Fair will take place from 11 am to 5 pm on the grounds of the Chippewa Restaurant. Located along the west side of the Highway 11-17 N, at the Chippewa River, the Fair will showcase “Arts, Crafts Food,  used & up-cycle items, metal & wood works, pottery, also garage sale things and much more” said  Ulrike Schneider, owner Bayview Pottery and Studio in Batchawana Bay.

“It was a very well received little Arts and Crafts Fair last summer, so Linda and Dave, the owners of Chippewa Restaurant invited everyone to come back again this year.” The Chippewa Restaurant is located directly across from the Chippewa Falls Park.

Ulrike Schneider told saultonline that  “The fee for vendors again this year is only  $ 10 bucks, and a can or boxed food donation for the Soup Kitchen.”

Ulrike Schneider, who worked at the Agawa Crafts & Canadian Carver, and  has taught pottery to children and adults in her studio is a long-time member of the local Arts Council, Art Gallery and Sault Ste Marie Potters Guild for many years.

Karen Nisbet, local artist is confirmed as a vendor and will be at the Fair with a collection of her pottery and jewelry.
